Re: Who played their last Game as a Bruin?

In response to Don-Bruino's comment:
For sure: Ference, Jagr, Horton, Peverley, Khudobin, Caron
Wouldn't surprise me: Seidenberg, Kelly.
Longshots: Lucic and Seguin (for blockbusters only)
Onward and Upward in 2013-14: Hamilton, Soderberg, Krug
Theme for 2013-14: The need for speed.
Ference will go out west probably a return to Calgary, Vancouver or even Edmonton. Either could use a veteran Dman like AF badly. Jagr was out of gas and it showed. JJ will play in Europe for maybe two more years, shortened seasons he needs that. Khudobin will be a starter by mid-season somewher in the NHL next season but not Boston (of course).
Soderberg is a better center than winger and it showed at times. Peverley is either dumped like Sturm or just bought out. Kelly stays cause if Julien were asked to choose, he would take Rich over Chris.
I think a Seguin trade should be explored at the draft and PC should let it be known that he did shop Tyler just like he did at the 2009 draft with Phil. Sick of the excuses for the kids disappearing act. Tyler needs to be put on notice that anyone can be traded.
I'm looking at all the other right-handed shots out there that would be available for trade or UFA and I don't see a replacement for Horton. I think he must be signed. This will be tough for PC to ask for Savards LTIR money after he requests a buyout of Peverley. If Jacobs puts his Jacob Marlley foot down the Bruins are screwed unless PC pulls off a trade.
The defense is set for a few more years but the 3rd line is what Chiarelli needs to work on this summer. PC cannot do a patchwork job like he did this past season, the 3rd line must be fixed!
"Need for speed" is agreat theme by the way!
